About FireMonkey

Fast path to iOS, Windows and Mac.

FireMonkey is a next generation platform for building multi-device, true native apps for iOS, Windows and Mac, using a single codebase. It lets you deliver apps, including client/server and multi-tier, up to 5x faster and more cost effectively than with OS vendor tools.

With the FireMonkey multi-device app platform, you don't have to maintain separate development projects to deliver your app natively for multiple devices (PCs, tablets and smartphones) on multiple platforms (iOS, Windows, and Mac). FireMonkey makes it easy to build script-free, true native apps that expose the full range of device capabilities and performance in the underlying devices.

Deliver Apps with More Power and Performance
FireMonkey apps leverage the full power of today's hardware with native CPU performance and GPU powered visuals on PCs, tablets and mobile devices. With FireMonkey, you get performance and responsiveness that you simply can't get from RIA platforms, virtual machine runtimes or dynamic languages.

Connect with More Data and Services
FireMonkey applications easily connect to the most popular databases, Web and cloud services, internet protocols and mobile devices, giving you business flexibility for both clients and servers.

Get More Security and Control
Many app development vendors enable multi-platform development by using scripting languages and runtimes which are notorious hacker targets and present inherent security risks on mobile devices. With FireMonkey, you get true native app development, so your code runs directly on the device, reducing the risk of third party attacks.
